The four of us had a great time on this cruise - beautiful clean ship, lovely art/décor, good staff, very quick embarkation. Really enjoyed the Premium Beverage Package and the My Time Dining was convenient. Although I made dinner reservations - we had no trouble getting in late (after 8:30) with no reservation and we got the same fun waitstaff each nite, MDR dinners are fab. Enjoyed all the lounges - so fun at Boleros, SkyBar, Crypt, pool parties, piano music Schooner, dancing at Pharaohs, cocktails at Viking Crown, and casino. Freedom on Ice show was very good - don't miss - even if you don't a reservation I think there were open seats. We liked the late shows, comedy shows, Love and Marriage, karaoke - so much to do!

Best port was Grand Cayman - so beautiful and the snorkel excursion was awesome but the ship leaves port way too early. DD & BF thought the Flowrider lesson was worth it and they climbed the rock wall, played mini golf, etc. Sprinkles ice cream machine always popular, had breakfast delivered, WJ good for quick lunch, sushi at Jade is nice early if we ate a light lunch and then dinner real late, pizza/sandwiches available after late nites out (we are on west coast time so we were real night owls!). Cabin steward was great- no complaints on our balcony stateroom. I purchased the photo package even tho its a lot to spend. We also did the next cruise open reservation for the $100 on board credit with $100 deposit.

All in all everything went very smoothly, no major complaints and we felt it was a great value for all the fun we had and just being together. Can't wait til next cruise!
